Question about Shimano 24 Speed Road Racing Bike Bicycle Modell Rs888

1 Answer

Hi, Just bought a new bike with shimano tiagra gearing. However the gear shifters doesn't seem to work. There is no movement in the cables when I try to shift gears. Do you have any idea for a quick fix or do I need to take it back to the shop (2,5 h drive from here). Thanx

You don't mention which shifter(s) malfunction or if you're even pedaling the bike while shifting (I make NO assumptions).

If you operate the inner shift lever (NOT the brake lever) on each side through several clicks that should RELAX any tension in the shifter cables. Then if you pick the bike up and pedal it forward a couple of turns the front shifter should drop the chain the the lowest chainring and the rear derailleur should shift out the the smallest cog.

With the bike suspended (say, hanging from a low tree branch by the tip of the seat) you should be able to turn the cranks and manually pull sideways on either exposed shifter cable where it runs down along the downtube then release it.

This should cycle each respective derailleur through its entire range. If the cables don't travel sufficiently in this manner, the shifters will never make them do it either.

Perhaps you could CALL the Bike Shop and they would talk you through a quick operational check.

SOURCE: shimano tiagra 9 speed shifters how to change gear

Go to http://techdocs.shimano.com/techdocs/index.jsp

Search in drop down list to go to all tiagra items and identify your particular components. Shimano are good at numbering their parts and you should find the number you seek on the bicycle component. You will usually be able to download an exploded parts diagram and service instructions. The service instructions are prefixed by the letters SI.

If you mean you can't get to the LARGE chainring, that would follow as the cable must be pulled the farthest to get to it. There are limit screws for each end of the derailluer's motion. You're probably fighting that adjustment. With the shifter tension on the cable totally relaxed (small chainring position) you should be able to manually grab the front derailleur cable as it runs along the downtube and, while pedaling the suspended bike, pull it away from the downtube and reach the highest chainring and, when released, the lowest chainring without dropping the chain. That's what the limits are for. THEN you adjust the cable tension and tweak it all. Web search for procedures like "how to..." just about anything and many resources will appear, some with video.

I need to find a explosive view shimano tiagra shifters but not the one on the shimano website. I need to rebuild them from scratch.


This is very difficult to find, if not near impossible. The one on Shimano's site is the best detail there is available to the general public.

The Tiagra STI shifters and all Shimano Shifters are not specifically designed to be rebuilt and are very difficult to put back together, I do not recommend it. You can do some basic disassembly and reassembly but a complete rebuild is very, very tricky. Some of the internal gear parts are not designed to come apart and go back together with standard tools.

What is the problem with your shifter that makes you want to rebuild? I would be happy to help you diagnosis the problem before you destroy the lever.

With Shimano 6603 Group can you use Shimano 5703 shifters, or even triple Tiagra shifters?? Thanks for the reply


The answer is yes and no.

The 5703 shifters will work both derailleurs and match the 6603 group as they are both 10spd.

The Tiagra will not work because it is 9spd, it will functionally shift the derailluer but you will not be able to line up the gearing.

The rear shifter needs to match the number of gears on the back (cassette) in the case of the 6603 group that is 10spd, so you can use any 10spd rear shifter from shimano. The Tiagra is either an 8spd or 9spd depending on the model and will not work with the cassette. You can use a 6603 rear derailleur with a Tiagra group, as long as the shifter and cassette are both the same.

I bought a mountain bike with Shimano Altus gears over the net with most of the assembly in place. Have indexed the rear gears which work fine. Did the same for the front deraileur works changing up but...


There are a couple of possible problems. You can try backing off the cable tension a little bit at the shifter and running back and forth through the gears adjusting as you go till it hits 2nd coming down.You can also try backing off the High limit screw on the derailleur. This will allow the shift to start a little farther from the bike hopefully hit 2nd. Hope this helps.

Deraileur adjustment/tuning


Yeah you will run into that at some bike shops. When they see older components like that, they often refuse to adjust them for fear of breakage and liability. Try a different bike shop if you can, or if you are confident in your mechanical abilities, try it yourself, instructions here:
